THAT’S SO PRECIOUS
I have a story.
So my sister got run over by a car once. It was a pretty big deal. Well like a year later she got into a little fender bender and was really bent out of shape about it, so I went and got her a cake.
When I put in my order for the cake, the guy at the bakery asked, “Do you want it to say anything?”
And with a perfectly straight face, I said, “‘Sorry you got hit by a car again.’”
He narrowed his eyes a moment, then nodded and wrote it down, and took it to kitchen to get the writing done.
All the way from the back of the kitchen, I hear a woman shout, “‘Again’?!”
Sometimes I love the pause button.
whoa dude just
let it go
Also good for the kids. They encourage having slow readers read to the family pets. A dog will listen to a kid read a whole book one damn sssyl-la——-ble at a time, and it will never get frustrated, or correct their pronunciation, or start playing Angry Bird because it can’t stand listening to the slowness any more. The dog will look at the kid approvingly, because, human. Human is talking. Human is interacting.
So this is a great win-win.
A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society. Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.
Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:
I don’t know who any of these folks are.
They were tourists I presume.
But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.
"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."
There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.
The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”
One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.
There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”
"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’
I’m sick of white people!! IM FUCKING SICK OF THEM!!!
"Not all white people."
"Not all white people."
"We all are human."
"Not all white people."
even the so called “good” white people wanna ignore this shit because it “makes them uncomfortable” fuck white people
I wasn’t going to say anything, but I felt I needed to step in. As a mixed girl majoring in criminal justice, I feel as if I am torn in a million different directions on this topic. Yes I agree we need to stop saying things like “fuck white people”, because we are just generalizing, and in fact we are just getting down to the SAME EXACT level as those people saying “oh they’re just black kids, they have nothing better to do”. We all know that there are people (of all races) that don’t tolerate other races than their own. What’s sad is that we think that by saying things like “fuck white people” we are making the situation better, when in fact we’re making it worse.
On another note, for the longest time I wanted to be a police officer (hence the criminal justice major). But the moment I realized when I see a police car on the street, my first thought is “oh shit I hope I’m not doing anything wrong” rather than a sense of protection, was the moment I realized that there is something seriously wrong with our criminal justice system. And I would never want to be a part of a system that puts fear into the community, when instead it should be putting ease on our hearts.
Depressing thought: in a 100 years almost everyone that’s alive now will be dead and the world will be inhabited by 10 billion or so completely new people.
not so depressing thought: maybe these new people will be less bigoted, sexist and racist.
Depressing thought: I won’t live to see that world.
Not so depressing thought: you can help to create that world.
this account was comedy gold and nothing you say will convince me otherwise
